Indianapolis, IN — Pine Island Software has released version 2.6 of its
Beehive ftp forms with built-in “On-The-Fly” streaming compression.
In response to the ever increasing throughput requirements of Internet file
transfer, Pine Island Software has developed a new streaming compression
technology for ftp called “On-the-Fly”. The “On-The-Fly” technology is now
shipping in both the Macintosh and Windows versions of the Beehive ftp
Beehive streaming compression can compress graphics files “On-The-Fly” with
compression ratios of up to 30 to 1. Text files are typically compressed
about 3 to 1. The Beehive compression algorithm permits the files and
folders to be compressed WHILE they are being sent – there is no offline
compression time consumed as with traditional compression utilities. The
“On-The-Fly” technology permits Beehive to send files faster than any other
ftp package, even when the other ftp packages are combined with off the
shelf compression utilities!
Single user evaluation copies of Beehive ftp forms ver 2.6 (with full
compression functionality) may be downloaded FREE OF CHARGE from the
